Should X be Multiplayer? (Poll) I wan't to make egosoft see how many people want this

Do you want X to be multiplayer?

But don't take anything about how hard it would be, money, etc into consideration.. JUST "do you want it multiplayer?"

That's it, simple isn't it?

Hopefully egosoft'll see the results and act acordingly. :)

Well it looks like I can't modify the poll, but yes, what I meant was, a choice between LAN and Internet, or single player.

I'd prefer that it stay single player. I just don't want to have to deal with idiots in a game as complicated as X3.

i'm not really a fan of multiplayer thing. Sure it's a fun addon but i think the game should be singleplayer first.
For me X plays like a book, i can pick it up when i've got time and put it down when i'm busy. No need to keep logging in to keep my ships or keep my skill.

He means multiplayer like at a LAN. Not Online.
This way only you and your friends have to play.

Edit the poll and say specific if you want it lan-able or online. I definitely want it lan-able (Me blowes up my friends! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: ) but not online.

the entire X series just isn't somethign that you make online. why? because we can't have everyone owning stations easily on an online game where you could easily destroy a station. I mean, what would be to stop me from getting a M2 and just blowing the liveing c**p out of a bunch of newbie's stations?
How to fix that kinda thing? make it all tightly controled and stuff like in EVE. Now, what i really like are games where you can do what ever you wan't (i'm talking about online games) where there's no restrictions on what you can do or who you can attack. None of this crap that insures you can't really loose anything if you ever get attacked.

An X MMO may work, but I doubt it. I would much rather them work on single player than multi player. Voted a big NO.

If multiplayer was incorporated with the X series it would slow the game down far too much and no one would fly anything other than the M5 class ship... imagine trying to cross a large and busy sector at 40m/s... with no SETA!!!


Games with no time distortion would work fine and i am usually all up for playing against real intelligence (rather than Artificial Idiots) but i simply wouldnt play a game where it could take 40 mins just to cross one sector with the chance of gettin blown up and not being able to load from a previous save, or when your retarded freighters take an unscheduled detour through hostile sectors without you knowing it.

agreed... it's rather overwhelming isn't it? (at time of this posting 19-1 for single player only)

X3/X4 online would be just as annoying as any other MMO, they'd be some guy who always beats down on you. Lol. :cry:

I used to play EVE online, it was just loads of people trying to score free stuff. Take it from me, X3 is waaaaay better off on single player.

As has been explained any number of times, it has never been a question of whether people want multiplayer or not. The issue has always been about about the time and cost of development, and finding a backer prepared to put that kind of money up front. I very much doubt that Egosoft would abandon the players who want to play single-player games in the X-Universe anyway, but voting on it isn't going to change anything at all.
